DATE: SEPT 21, 1940 CONSTRUCTION OF THE 16FT (HIGH SPEED) WIND TUNNEL. OF THE ORIGINAL TUNNELS PLANNED FOR AMES THE 16FT HAD PERHAPS THE HIGHEST PRIORITY. ASSIGNED THIS PRECEDENCE BECAUSE IT WAS TO HAVE A HIGHER SPPED THAN ANY OTHER MAJOR WIND TUNNEL IN THE NACA AND WOULD PROVIDE AERODYNAMIC DATA AT SPEEDS AT WHICH FUTURE MILITARY AIRPLANES WERE EXPECTED T FLY. IT OPERATED AT SPEEDS UP TO 680 MPH, ABOUT 0.9 OF THE SPEED OF SOUND AND 4 TIMES THE CROSS-SECTIONAL AREA OF THE LANGLEY 8FT TUNNEL....

Date: Oct 4, 1940 Construction of the 16ft (high speed) Wind Tunnel. Of the original tunnels planned for Ames the 16ft had perhaps the highest priority. Assigned this precedence because it was to have a higher spped than any other major wind tunnel in the NACA and would provide aerodynamic data at speeds at which future military airplanes were expected t fly. It operated at speeds up to 680 mph, about 0.9 of the speed of sound and 4 times the cross-sectional area of the Langley 8ft tunnel. Its...

NASA Deputy Administrator, Lori Garver, dressed up like a wizard for the Yuri's Night festivities at NASA Ames Research Center on April 10, 2010. Center Director, Pete Worden, dressed up like a klingon for the night. There lots of costumes and photos at the event so make sure to see all of the photos.
